Extinction Prediction/ Uni work update

Just read an article in HK yahoo, saying that the Earth is having the 6th extinction period very soon. The main reason included deforestation, pollution and global warming. Species extinct in a rapid rate, which is 100 times than the average speed recorded before. Chain reaction starting from environment damaged, food chain, climate change….all growing like a snow ball.

whenever see the report or news about this, I feel what I am doing is right, I prefer working and creating art in this direction…rather than topics about politics problem.

I found they are all interesting and inspire me much on my unit1 project.

“Tiger Bomb” – mushroom cloud with lots of tigers shadow inside. like saying tiger extinction is a disaster, they are disappearing…

Tiger chopsssss (could not find in brochure, but I like it very much!!!) is a picture of Tiger’s head, consisting 3,500 numbers of tiger chops (which is the no. of tigers in the world right now). That is funny if the artist keep doing that every period of time…..will the picture become smaller and smaller? and finally nothing?!ImageImage
